6 month program | Enrolls in September & March
Transform your passion for boating into a rewarding, in-demand career. The ACCSC-accredited Marine Systems program will prepare you to seamlessly enter the marine industry as a systems technician in just 6 months.
In this program, you will learn the theory and technologies of both stand-alone and fully-integrated boat systems and the inner workings of a powerboat down to the most meticulous details. By the time you graduate, you’ll be able to install, repair, and troubleshoot everything from diesel and outboard engines to electrical systems to computer-based electronics and hydraulics.
Students will prepare for and take valuable ABYC, NMEA, and Yamaha certifications as part of the program and will build working simulation panels from the ground up which contain all of the systems on a powerboat. This immersive program prepares students with a wide range of skills for in-demand maritime careers.
